So-Cal's Face to Face is one of the most consistent acts in punk. With the exception of 2004-2008, the four years the band broke up, it has steadily put out albums--from 1992's Don't Turn Away all the way to 2013's Three Chords and a Half Truth. Its nine studio releases rock driving guitars, screaming choruses and balls-out beats with nary a flaw to be found.
But solid as the band's oeuvre is, it all still basks in the shadow of one song: "Disconnected," a track that not only defines the band, but is so good, it could represent the pop-punk genre as a whole.
Classics are generally played last, meaning you can use the rest of the band's set to reacquaint yourself with its other material before they cut into "Disconnected."
With Teenage Bottlerocket, Blacklist Royals and Joshua Black Wilkins. 8 p.m., $18-$35. Knitting Factory, 416 S. Ninth St., 208-367-1212, bo.knittingfactory.com.
